Citizens are central to any meaningful definition of democracy. Whatdoes it say about the health of Canadian democracy when fewer citizensthan ever are exercising their right to vote and party membership rollsare shrinking? Are increasingly well-educated citizens turning awayfrom traditional electoral politics in favour of other forms ofdemocratic engagement or are they simply withdrawing from politicalparticipation altogether?

The first comprehensive assessment of citizen engagement in Canada,this volume raises challenging questions about the interests andcapabilities of Canadians as democratic citizens, as well as theperformance of our democratic institutions. It is essential reading forpoliticians and policy-makers, students and scholars of Canadianpolitics, and all those who care about the quality of Canadiandemocracy.
